With the New Year right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to travel to a new destination to make your celebratory night worthwhile. Here are some places for you to visit to ring in the New Year.
New York City, New York
Times Square is the perfect place to visit if you’d like to join in on a huge celebration with the whole city. Watch the ball drop with nearly 1 million other people, while enjoying performances from popular musicians, free of charge. You’re in for a great night.
London is another great place to visit to usher in the New Year. The River Thames is the hot spot for New Year’s Eve, right at midnight, the famous Big Ben clock tower chimes, along with fireworks. After that, you can join in on the three-hour celebration in the streets of London with marching bands, costumes and floats. You won’t be disappointed!
Paris is a beautiful city to visit for a celebratory New Year’s, it’s romantic and has lovely places to dine or go dancing. Champs-Elysees is a well-known street in Paris; it’s always a really popular destination for travelers during this time. The street is beautifully lit with lights and fireworks being set off sporadically by people in the crowd.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
If you’d like to ring in the New Year in a more warm and tropical location, Rio de Janeiro is the place for you. Copacabana Beach is famous for hosting one the most amazing New Year’s Eve celebrations. Join the Brazilians by wearing all white, which is seen as a source of good luck, while enjoying music and fireworks over the water.
Australia is also a warm and amazing destination to visit, specifically the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It’s known for having the most spectacular firework shows in the world, so if you enjoy seeing breathtaking firework displays, this is the perfect location for you.
